The dust has barely settled from the climactic battle between Totenkinder and Cinderella – and everything is far from happily ever after. A legendary new adversary has arrived, and he plans to get even with Geppetto for the mess that has been made of Manhattan. But it’s a new day… and with it, a new Jack in the Green has arrived in the Black Forest.

“BANNER OF WAR” PART TWO! The 60th Anniversary celebration – and Thor and Hulk’s epic rivalry – continues in the second installment of the crossover between the HULK and THOR series! Banner’s newfound control of his rage is prolonging this fight more than Thor expected, and with Banner holding his own, Thor must get creative. Odin’s breakthrough look into Banner’s psyche seems to slow the violence, but will it be enough?
Additionally, new creators to the THOR title bring glimpses into the possible futures of Thor and his friends!

Bob Ryder is a hapless bureaucrat whose bad luck streak comes to a crescendo when he accidentally kills the city’s masked vigilante, The Knight. Oops.

Now trapped at the bottom of an abyss where not a ray of light reaches, they have only one thing to do: wait for help and survive. Victims of their anxiety, they begin to lose their bearings. Fear and madness set in, making it impossible to discern reality from illusion…
